A lot of people fail to realize how many abilities are just Cho'gaths rupture.

There will always be similarities in abilities, there is only a finite amount of ways you can change something to be different but do the same thing as something else.

Yeah, so WHY CHANGE KARMA's UNIQUE properties?!? She has the most unique kit in the game! DON't CHANGE HER!

After reading the new kit a few times, there are a couple of things I think I'll miss while playing as Karma:

The first one would be that aparently, Focused Resolve/Renewal doesn't seem to have any effect on other creatures that walk through it like Soul Bond Currently does. (I just realized that I wont be able to use it on a friend so we both can walk faster, I'll miss that too, now I'll have to choose if I want to walk faster or if I'd prefer my ally to do so, unless I have Mantra to spend on Defiance).

The other thing I'll miss is the fact that now i wont be able to heal multiple friendly targets, cause now Soulflare is purely offensive.

Is it there any posibility to get any of those things back into her new kit?

thank you.

Edit: Don't get me wrong, I love the effort you're putting into making Karma a neat champ, but I think it would be sad to sacrifice the most original mechanics of her current kit. I think it could be arranged by making the tether have a small extra effect in champions and minions crossing it, making allied champions near Karma receive some healing during Renewal and making Inspire in a way so it can give Karma the speed buff even when she targets an ally with it, just to give possible solutions to make her feel more like the Karma we know.

The only thing I'm not really a fan of is the new W. I liked that it was a very unique skill (though I do recognize that it was also unintuitive and its Mantra form was kind of lame) while the new one sounds just like LeBlanc's E. I also don't like removing the ability to attach it to allies because of how well the contrasting uses fit with her theme.

If I had to suggest something, I'd say keep the slow/speed up effects but change the empowered version. Mantra W to allies could heal both Karma and her target, while Mantra W to enemies could add the root and/or damage. I know you aren't really looking for this kind of suggestion, but this is just what I think feels better.

Everyone downvote the first Riot post to let them know we Karma players don't like being ignored and disregarded.

If you love "Old Karma" downvote every Riot post you see welcoming a Karma change.
